    The Games was probably the only good show my dad ever got me to watch...

    Sad news, he was hilarious

    So sad and what a loss. Loved to watch Clarke & Dawe every Thursday night.
    Will be missed.

    I know, ****.

    I've been trying to find a clip of his I saw on a retrospective special a few years ago, it was him announcing the New Zealand cultural team in the style of a football lineup announcement.

    N. Finn.
    T. Finn.
    K. Tekanawa
    etc

    Brilliant stuff.

    Will be greatly missed, a penetrating whit, and delightfully irreverent view of those who would run our lives.

    Very sad news.
    "Clark & Dawe" was always so clever and "The Games", well I hope the ABC give that a re-run, because I need to know just how long that 100m track is again.

    Never know how he managed to keep a straight face delivering some of those lines.

    First noticed him when he appeared in some TV ads back in the early '80s. Sort of reprised the Bazza McKenzie character and banter as Dagg, but he was fresher, faster and funnier.

    I remember the ads being for Air New Zealand, but this YouTube says they were Qantas.

    Going to miss Clarke & Dawe.

    RIP Mr Clarke.

    I went on a binge watch last night. This is a major loss.
    There is not enough good Satire in the world for relief for us all to laugh at ourselves and to be presented with our own,,,,faults in such an acceptably humorous way.

    I'm not sure if this was posted in the Cyclone Debbie thread.
